Performix xMES(R) Achieves SAP xApp Certification; Composite Application 'Fills the Gaps' for SAP Batch Manufacturing.
HOUSTON -- Performix, a leading developer of composite applications for streamlining Recipe Management, Manufacturing Execution and Electronic Batch Recording (EBR), today announced Performix xMES[R] has achieved the SAP xApp Certification. Through pre-built integration with SAP MII, manufacturing customers can quickly standardize on the usability and methodology for Recipe creation and editing as well as execute batch manufacturing by eliminating redundancy and accelerating time-to-market.
Today's MES solutions have evolved into monolithic software suites that create functional overlap with SAP and plant floor automation systems. This overlap often produces data redundancy, transaction replication and expensive maintenance and support costs. Designed for the pharmaceutical and process industries, Performix xMES eliminates these gaps by leveraging existing functionality residing within the SAP system and extending the reach of SAP into the manufacturing plant floor environment. The integration of Performix xMES and SAP dramatically reduces the complexity, cost and time associated with installation while streamlining manufacturing processes.
This innovative approach completes the SAP manufacturing solution for batch manufacturing and enables customers to achieve Manufacturing Excellence by fully leveraging functionality and master data already in SAP R/3 and filling the gaps that exist between SAP and the MES and automation systems.
"The Performix xMES solution ensures customers are deriving the most value from their existing SAP investments," said Sham Afzalpurkar, founder and chief executive officer, Performix. "By developing solutions with composite applications that fill the gaps, Performix eliminates the challenges created by missing or overlapping capabilities between existing systems providing a streamlined approach to manufacturing from the corporate enterprise to the shop floor."
Powered by SAP NetWeaver, the Performix xMES Suite includes Performix xRecipe, a solution that standardizes the creation and management of recipes in SAP PP-PI through a graphical drag and drop user interface; Performix xMES engine, technology that powers the execution of recipes; and Performix xBatch enabling the capture of electronic batch records. Like Performix xMES, these solutions enable full reporting and analytics through SAP MII based on industry-standard key performance indicators (KPIs).
